Steve Jobs birthday wishes fly on Twitter



Steve Jobs

SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter was abuzz on Friday with loving words for Steve Jobs on what would have been the late Apple co-founder’s 57th birthday.

“Happy birthday Steve Jobs,” read a post from Apple-centric blog Cult of the Mac. “The whole world misses you.”

Jobs’ birthday was among the top five trends at Twitter.

Those feeding the torrent of messages tweeted through the day ranged from young folks who cherished their iPods to major corporations or publications paying tribute to how Jobs changed lives around the globe.

“Innovation won’t be the same without you,” read a Jobs birthday message at the official Twitter account of General Electric.

Rolling Stone magazine tweeted a link to a 2003 interview with Jobs focused on Apple’s move into digital music.

Someone using the name of the Darth Vader character from “Star Wars” jokingly tweeted about trying to convince film-maker George Lucas to add Jobs’ ghost to those in the closing scene of the final film in the blockbuster series.

Popular tweets included famous Jobs’ quotes including “The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

Jean-Luc Palumbo tweeted that he hoped Jobs was enjoying “iHeaven.”

The Apple co-founder and mind behind the wildly popular iPod, iPad and iPhone devices died in October after battling pancreatic cancer.

    Steven P. Jobs in 1994 interview, famously bragged, “Picasso had a saying – ‘Good artists copy, great artists steal.’ And we have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.”

    =========================================

    He is a badA$$ copying all ideas, improving them and patented them as if he is the original thinker.

    NEONODE — a small Swedish phone manufacturer — was the first to deploy the swipe-to-unlock technology commercially. And it also appears to be the first to have patented swipe-to-unlock. Neonode Beat Apple to the Patent Punch by 3 Years. This ia one of the MAJOR PATENT STEVE JOB is arguing ever since that ANDROID is a STOLEN GREAT APPLE IDEA and battling Samsung, Motorola, HTC worldwide.

    This Neonode idea, 3 years before the first iPhone was released was buried in U.S. Patent No. 8,095,879.

    Shame on you Steve. Use your money to innovate and build better products rather than stopping the sales of good ANDROID Phones from Samsung, HTC, and Motorola.

    WHY are you not attacking SONY xPERIA Phone with Patent Litigation?
    Simply because APPLE Co. was still wearing diapher when SONY got the empire of PATENTS, proven ORIGINAL ideas which APPLE and MICROSOFT are using until now.

    Shame on YOU.

       yeah right just slide to unlock but you don’t get the point..why so bitter on attacking a dead genius?do you happen to know the two genius coed guys John Elias and Wayne Westerman who owns the company called fingerworks behind the multi-touch product which happen to be acquired by apple inc?

      hey dick head! what platform or device your using!? Maybe your android sucker who also steal ideas! Jobs and Apple Innovate technology and owned it if it is proven they are the first one in the world who developed it, when stealing ideas they revolutionized it. Yes eventually they will faced patent suit on the early stage of innovation. So thats way there is Patent Law for that to settle it down and license it to others. Apple is known for its revolutionary products and Innovation! Other competitors do the same because its a corporate greed! 

      Regardless of this and that Apple still the best in products innovative design or revolutionized design to manufacturing and distribution and another thing they are good in caring cutomers with its money back guarantee. Apple is growing in its market share and I guess that will stay forever.
